It's great to see "straight out the camera, no PP" on posted images

Is really meaningless, every camera does this job differently.
All that means is the designers got their way (on that shot).
There is an ocean of alternatives for shots that don't look
over-processed, just as there is for those that do.

Not sure I agree with that? I know that digital cameras have different processor and jpeg engines but with a decent DLSR I could shoot a very over/under exposed image, not straight,nor in complete focus, get home and rectify the lot in PS within an hour.

Not so sure you'd take that approach with a film camera. A decent photographer [film or digital] would make sure all the above was correct before taking the shot.

to put it another way is digital making lazy photographers of us?
